Amirah MalekInformatics Major with Medical Sciences Cognate and Minors in Business and Computer Science, Class of 2020

Hi! I'm Amirah from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I'm currently a freshman at IU, majoring in Informatics with cognates in Business, Human-Centered Computing and Medical Sciences. I’ve been traveling since I was two months old, so airports are pretty much my second home now. My favorite thing about being an international student is definitely having the opportunity to befriend people from all over the world. (My best friends are from Korea, Burma and USA!) One thing that is not so great about being an international student is the fact that it took me 36 hours to get to Bloomington, trust me, being stuck in a plane for 15 hours straight is not exactly the best thing ever. However, being in IU is definitely worth traveling 9,000 miles away from home. Other than that, I love to fill my free time by writing songs and playing my guitar, so go creativity!
